Bold Idea 

Resolve the massive sanitation problems in the world’s slums, starting in Kenya, with an economically sustainable microentrepreneurial network of clean, containerized toilets and service to convert the waste to electricity and fertilizer.

Sanergy promotes the fundamental human right to sanitation in the slums of Kenya by increasing access to and usage of hygienic sanitation facilities. Sanergy creates an efficient, equitable, and sustainable sanitation cycle by building a dense network of small-scale sanitation centers across the slums, developing a low-cost containerized waste collection infrastructure, and converting this waste at a central processing facility in to electricity, fertilizer, and other high-margin products.

Ani Vallabhaneni graduated with an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management, where he was a fellow at the Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship and a co-President of Sloan Entrepreneurs for International Development. Prior to MIT, Ani managed a chain of dialysis clinics for low-income patients in the Philippines. With a background in technology and operations, he has also built startups in India and United States.
